of us are in for a rainy friday night. >> yeah, the clouds are kicking up there, doug kammerer. >> just about everybody seeing the clouds right now. some of us are seeing rain. those of you who are seeing rain now, may just see it for the rest of the night tonight. but to the north of washington, not a whole lot going on. 76 degrees the current temperature out there, with the cloudy skies. winds out of the northwest at about 12 miles per hour. a nice mild evening for some. rainy for others. you see where this rain is. north of washington, in through montgomery county, howard county, northern arundel, mostly dry, even back to frederick county, maryland. but down to the south, this is where we're seeing rain. like charles county, prince george's county, northern virginia, prince william and out towards fauquier and down around the fredericksburg area and back towards loray. there is more rain to come. we could be seeing quite a bit in terms of rainy conditions throughout the evening. i'll show you who gets what tonight and what to expect for your weekend. >> all righty. >>> two high ranki
with doug blink brinkley, the historian to look at this broad notion. it seems to me ronald reagan benefited later in his term and his second term from his economic decision making. you might argue bill clinton benefited from george herbert walker bush's decision making. there's always a time lag. can anybody honestly blame a president for the economic conditions in hiswhen do you be assess the effectiveness of the new policies as opposed to the policies he inherited? >> well, i think that moment usually comes when those presidents try to get re-elected. there's no way anybody can say we're worse off now than we were four years ago, as you have just delineated, chris. i mean, the country was going down the drain, people were talking about a great depression, there was a fear of stock market collapse. people were hoarding money. it's all changed, and the stimulus was a big part of it. the question that's fair to ask is did president obama do enough? he definitely did a lot, and it will get down i think to history going back should that have been the krugman thesis, a double stimulus, or did h
